My thesis is a proposal for international “opportunity zones” in order to help bolster the economies within the Latin American Region.

What was your most memorable experience as an Eccles student?

My most memorable moments as an Eccles Student have been international company visits through the Business Scholars Program and Eccles Global. From Peru to Sweden and everywhere in between, these programs took me to places I could have only dreamed of. The world was my classroom here at the Eccles School, and I am extremely grateful for my time spent here at the U.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank, acknowledge or shout out?

Dr. Sue Sundar for her amazing work within the OSC program and for her mentorship. As well as Buzz Welch and the entire Eccles Global Staff.
